Sony Xperia Z3 passes Coca Cola, Nutella tests (Yum!)

Enough of the bendgate scandals. To test the real strength of a smartphone, drop it in water but not for too long. The newest phones in the market today boast of being all waterproof aside from being dustproof and drop-resistant. Just make sure the phone is really 'waterproof' and not just water-resistant lest you want to be this lady in South Africa who wasted $800 on her Sony Xperia Z1 which she used in water.

LG G3 locked bootloader workaround now available

The LG G3 is truly a flagship device in all senses of the term. It’s stylish and elegant, and the Korean manufacturer spared no cost on the specs and hardware. That is why we like it so much. And the software – well, we think LG does one of the best versions of tweaked Android out there, bar none. One small issue may be that the LG G3 comes with a locked bootloader, hence custom ROMs used to be close to impossible to install. Not anymore.

AMPY powers gadgets using movement

One of the biggest challenges that mobile users face is keeping their gadgets charged up when they are out of the home or office all day and use their smartphone frequently. Often the only choice is to go with a battery case of some sort to keep things running. A new option has hit Kickstarter called AMPY.

DROID TURBO sports a 3,900mAh Battery

Obviously, any news of a new Android device is good news even if still considered a rumor. The next smartphone model we should focus our attention to is this DROID TURBO we believe is by Motorola and recently spotted at the FCC grounds. A Verizon version was also leaked a couple of weeks ago and in a leaked manual only yesterday. And who could forget its appearance at GFX bench too? We’ve heard a lot about this smartphone but it has yet to be announced officially.

WSJ says Nexus 6 coming out this month

In case you were wondering – and we know many of you are – the Wall Street Journal has got it on good sources that the whale-sized phone (geddit?) we all are waiting for would indeed be launching this October. We are talking about the new Nexus 6 made by Motorola, of course – more popularly known as “Shamu” or “Free Willy” or whatever whale joke-slash-name you would have for it.

HTC One M8 EYE unveiled in China

HTC has been busy of late with the unveiling of some new digital imaging products like the HTC RE camera and the Desire Eye digital camera. This week a new smartphone from HTC has been unveiled in China called the HTC One M8 Eye. Interestingly the smartphone was unveiled in China with no fanfare.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 gets dropped over and over and over

One of the constant nightmares of expensive smartphone owners is that they drop their phone, crack the screen, make it non-functioning and just make their life miserable, not to mention how much it would cost to have it repaired. And with the whole hullabaloo about a certain OEM that released a highly-anticipated smartphone only to have complaints about breaking and bendability, owners are now even more careful about their next big gadget purchase. Samsung decided to put your minds at ease by dropping their new Galaxy Note 4 over and over again and show how tough it is.

Verizon DROID Turbo gets detailed in leaked manual

We've heard and seen leaks about Motorola's new DROID device heading for Verizon and so far it has painted a rather surprising picture of a smartphone that could very well have been Motorola's flagship. Now a leaked manual supposedly for the Verizon DROID Turbo has popped up that seemingly confirms that more than premium image of the device. But despite being a carrier-exclusive (at least as far as we know), it seems that the DROID Turbo still offers that same "vanilla" Android experience as the Moto X.

HTC Desire EYE has your selfie needs covered on both sides

It appears that the leaks were quite spot on. HTC does indeed have a double-sided camera phone for digital photographers and selfie addicts alike. As part of its brand new imaging thrust, which led to the new HTC RE camera as well, the HTC Desire EYE offers a new kind of mobile photography experience, by making the front-facing camera a first class citizen and on the exact same level as the back one. Perhaps it also helps that the HTC Desire EYE is strangely quite on par with the HTC's One M8 flagship in terms of hardware.
